    The Lilypad provides 8 challenges a month for you to participate in, and uses a percent system for your rewards; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a guest spot on the Lilypad Creative Team!

    Since we have 8 challenges total, this allows you to skip one challenge if it just doesn't suit your style and still be eligible for a guest polly spot. You can, of course, complete all 8 challenges if you want, but it won't increase your rewards for that month, other than you've completed an extra page!

    The first 7 challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the 8th challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day (first Friday of the Month). Challenge layouts must contain 75% TLP product (eligible product can be current or retired product from resident designers, or guest designer product that is currently in the TLP store). BYOC challenge layouts must have 90% current BYOC product from the current month's BYOC. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    All challenge layouts must be posted in the TLP gallery listing the product used for your pages, and must be completed by midnight eastern time on the last day of the month.

    You should post your challenge pages each month in the Challenge Layouts thread. There should only be one post per participant in this thread. After you post your first challenge, please edit that post to add each additional challenge page you complete. At the end of the month, this thread will be closed and you will be contacted with a coupon code for your discount. Only one post per person will be tallied, so please do not post multiple times in this thread. In order to make tallying easier, we also ask that this thread be used only for posting challenge pages; please do not comment on the pages in the layout thread, but feel free to go to the gallery to leave some love!

    Throughout the month, as I see people finishing the challenges, I will move your post to a "Finished Challenges" thread so I can tally the finishers throughout the entire month instead of just at the end. Please do not move your own post over when you've completed the challenges.

    Coupons are sent via conversation within 7-10 days after the challenges close.

    If anyone has any questions, please let us know!

    just wanted to drop a quick line, and here was the best place I could think of...
    Good job with the challenge topics this month - at least for me. I am already very inspired (not that I'm not usually, or anything, but today I felt I should vocalize it... er... type it? ;) ) :) :fairydance:heartslub

    I have a question. Are we allowed to use the retiring products from Jacque Larsen for the challenges for this month?

    Yes. Since her store will be open for a portion of the month, you can use her products.

    I am way behind on our Guest Polly spots. We do announce those in the forum, and I'll get that updated soon!

    If we have found freebies from the active designers here, can we use them in the gallery? Can we use 100% of the freebies in one layout, or mix them with kits in the store?
